    I'm sure Daggett County is loaded with folks who know how to repair hovercraft.

    Prediction time: This thing will be out for repairs 300 days a year.

    Certainly if those one or two lives saved are children, that will COMPLETELY justify the expenditure (yes, that is tongue in cheek). Such a tool may be necessary and useful, but it should have been bought and justified on budget, rather than from a government agency.

    This surely sounds like a valuable tool for search and rescue especially, as well as maintainance/security of the dam. I hope it can be used for many years.
